Surveys with a potential bleaching risk
Through a validation analysis that compared 10 years of our data to well-established bleaching events, CoralWatch has developed an evidence-based approach to classifying our data. Based on our analyses, each of the surveys listed below has a 70% likelihood of representing a small bleaching event. Read more about our validation analysis here.
If you see a survey in your area indicating a potential bleaching risk, please conduct additional CoralWatch surveys, or inform your local reef management group so additional investigations can be carried out to determine if a true bleaching event is occurring.
